PICNIC Festival 2012 was an international gathering of approximately 3000 professionals representing business, technology, government and non profit, education and the creative industries.
It became an active learning environment where companies and organizations came together to understand the 'new ownership' shift. They questioned assumptions and then improved and re-imagined situations by developing new ideas, concepts and prototypes.
The goal was to discover opportunities for transformation: processes, cultures, products, services, models and experiences.
Festival Theme: "New Ownership: the shift from top down to bottom up"
Connected technology is empowering people, businesses and organizations to drive change on a local and global scale. The Internet has increased awareness of issues and social media is providing a stronger ability to take action.
A new notion of ownership has emerged: people are taking matters back into their own hands as they realize that everyone can potentially fulfil a role regardless of their position or location. Everyone has the power to do things for themselves on an even greater scale.
How are individuals, societies, businesses and institutions adapting to this ownership shift? How will we stay relevant and meaningful in this brave new world? Who will be the winners and the losers of this disruption?
PICNIC, together with its partners and friends, has investigated what “New Ownership” means and what new opportunities it offers for our personal lives, society, businesses and planet.
